Xiaomi is famous for their budgeted smartphones. They specially targets people who can't afford flagship phones.Few months back they launched their Xiaomi Redmi 5 plus,which went out of stock in only few days. This time they came back again with a BANG! They launched REDMI Y1 with lots of specifications and in an affordable price. Let us have a tour!


REDMI Y1 has IPS LCD screen which supports 16M colors. The display is 5.5 inches, with screen resolution of 720x1080, having 16:9 aspect ratio with 236 ppi. This means that REDMI Y1 only support HD resolution does not support full HD resolution. REDMI Y1 comes with Corning gorilla glass 3 protection. It also multitouch upto 5 finger. So overall display is not too good and not too bad
also. In my opinion, pixels density should be higher than what it is now and REDMI Y1 should have supported full HD resolution. REDMI Y1 is 153 x 76.2 x 7.7 mm in dimensions with 153 gram weight. It has Dual nano sim slot and supports dual stand-by.


Now a days, smartphones companies are focussing in bigger RAM and bigger memory. Same happens REDMI Y1. REDMI Y1 comes in two variant, 64 GB with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB with 3GB RAM. It also has dedicated memory card slot which supports card upto 256 GB micro sd card. REDMI Y1 runs on Android 7.0 (Nougat) which can be updated to Android 8.0 (Oreo). It has Snapdragon 435 chipset, which is quite old. Its CPU is octa-core with clocking speed of 1.4 GHz and have Adreno 505 as its GPU. User will experience Xiaomi new UI- MIUI 9.0, which is quite lighter in experience. There are no problem with its OS and memory, the only problem is their OS. If they are launching it after 2 months of launching of Android 8.0, then REDMI Y1 must come with Android 8.0 out of the box.


REDMI Y1 has 13 MP primary camera with f/2.2 aperture and autofocus. It also has LED flash at its back. Its camera supports HDR, panorama, face detection, geo-tagging. REDMI Y1 can record video in 1080p at 30 fps. It is not that great camera, but yes we can compromise here. Coming to its front camera, REDMI Y1 has 16 MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture and can record video in 1080 p. It also comes with front selfie flash. Seems like it is specially made for selfie. With f/2.0 aperture camera will receive 20% more light than rear camera and users will get great low light selfie. In camera section, they did a good job in this budget. Now coming to its battery, REDMI Y1 comes with non-removable Li-ion 3080 mAh battery, which gives 240 hours stand-by on 3G and 32 hours talk time on 3G with 75 hours of battery backup on music play. There never been a single case when anyone complained about REDMI battery backup. Their battery backup has always been superior.REDMI Y1 red box


REDMI Y1 is featured with sensors, such as fingerprint sensor (rear-mounted), accelerometer, gyro sensor, proximity sensor, compass. It is having 4.2 bluetooth support, infrared port, FM radio, micro USB 2.0 and 3.5mm headphone jack. Thank God! They did'nt remove headphone jack. Well we all  have to thanks them. Lets go for price!


Now we arrived at the focus, its price. It is available in $162.47 or Rs. 10,548. As usual, they are giving these much specifications in low price. No surprise, why their mobile phones are always out of stock on the online shopping sites. It is a must use smartphone with so much specifications. We do not expect a huge quantity of specifications with quality in this budget, so we can ignore screen quality or camera in REDMI Y1.

Hope it helps!!..
Be updated for the curiosity!!...

  • Good bye.. Cheers!!
